I am glad that everyone is doing well and getting closer to the big day
yes, we took birth preparation classes at the beginning of July. It was 2 days, 3 hours each class. We had a tour at L/D at that hospital. However, my OB group has just moved on August 1st to another hospital (which is only a few miles away from the previous one, and also it is a new hospital that was opened the last year). So yesterday we decided to go and check the new hospital - just to know how to get to the L/D unit there. I don't think I would be in a mood to look for it when contractions and labor begin
Also, I got a new gown and slippers for the hospital. I am thinking to start getting ready with the hospital bag in order to feel less anxious by knowing that everything is ready.
We ordered the crib the last week, it should arrive in a couple weeks, and got a crib bedding yesterday. There are a few more things to get and I hope we will be ready with this too. Anyway, Babies R us is a couple miles away from my house, so I don't worry too much if I forget to get something - there is always an option to go to the store and get it.
I am envy you. I am at this point when I would like to stay home and take it easy (I have never been this way before). I am an RN and working nights 3 times a week. It is getting pretty rough on my body. So I am cutting my hours to twice a week. I also want to be done with my school this year, so I continue with it. We have a lot of clinicals now at school (about 80 hours, which I want to complete before September). Now you see why I wish be at home.
I think it is a great idea to have 4D U/S. Let us know when you'll do itand how you would like the results..
I am amazed that you continue to be so active. It is cloudy here today, so I had a thought to go for a walk; however, the humidity is much higher because of monsoon season, and I don't think I will be able to tolerate a walk now. So I decided to stay in a pool and soak
My DH wants to get for me a rocking chair also. I think it will be very handy in the nearest future.
I am also hope to hear from everyone more often now, when we are getting closer to our DD. I will try to post more often too.
